This paper describes promising practices on the use of presumptive eligibility to improve access to long-term services and supports (LTSS) in five states. These states can presume financial eligibility for Medicaid LTSS, and some of these states also can fast-track the determination process to arrange for timely home- and community-based services. These promising practices can help people with LTSS needs live in their own homes and communities.
